beachels416 writes “The NY Times gained access to a Chinese hacker-for-profit, referred to as ‘Majia,’ and observed him during one of his nightly ‘sessions.’ From the article: ‘Oddly, Majia said his parents did not know that he was hacking at night [hacking is illegal in China]. But at one point, he explained the intricacies of computer hacking and stealing data while his mother stood nearby, listening silently, while offering a guest oranges and candy.’ At another point Majia spoke about the recent Google attacks, and claimed to have particular knowledge of the exact vector used. Nothing too new, but an interesting read nevertheless.”
